If it continues it must speedily be followed by

mand enormous premium, or the swollen rev.

ta ever the bane of au overflowing treaaan-. 
It waa made apparent in the course of the 
aclmaled discussion which the question 
aroused at tho last session of congress that tae 
pol.ov of diminution of the revenue by redue- 
lug taxation commanded the general approviu 
of members of both I regret that be- 
eaneeof that conflict as to best mttliod In wbica 
that policy should be made operative, none of 
ita benefits have been reajied. In fulfillment 
of what I deem my constitutional duty, but 
with little hope that I can make valuable con- 
tribution to this vexed question, I shall pro- 
ceed to intimate briefly my own views in reia- 
tion to IL Upou the showing of our financi!-! 
condition at ths close of the last flcjcal year, 1 
felt justified in recommending to eongrees the

I venture now to suggest ihat.nnless it shall be 
asoerufned that tha probable expenditure* or 
the government for the coming yeai 
have been onderestimafed. Internal taxea. 
eave those which relate to distilled 
spirits, can be prndentlv abrogated. 
Such, acoompanled bv a simplification of the 
machiueryof collection, which wonld theu be 
easv of socomplishmen', mkht reasonably he 
expected to reeult in diminishing the cost of 
such collection by at iaa«t If 2.6oO,000. and In 
the reUrement from offl-'e of from l.DOO to

The sentiment of the country doubtless com 
msuds that the present excise tax eha 1 po 
abolished as soon as »uoh oouree can aateiy ne 
pnrauad. It seems to m». however, for vari- 
ons reasons, that so sweeping a measure as the 
total abolition of internal taxea would, for tne 
preeeut, l.e an unwise atep. Two of tbese 
Reasons are deserving of special mentioa 

First— It is by no means clear thai, even ir 
the exUting system of duties ou imporU 1* cou-

Davittssys that no! being morally con- 
scious of having broken or led others to break 
tbe law, he should remain in Ireland until 
Monday, when, if not arrested, he intended 
to proceed to the north of Eugland to give a

eulogized the action of tiie Irish parlianienta- 
rv {-arty. Davitt saiil he had decidedly de- 
termined not to en'»r a recognizut ce tor

Negotiations arc proceetling. Xubar Pash*, 
who has arriv-d at Cairo, ha-ibecn informed 
that Englaml declines to rejognize or .sanc-

Belle Plaine Herald: We le arn as we go 
to press, that a most borrible tragedy oc- 
curred at Montgomery, Le Saeur coun ty. 
on Saturday last, by wh ch a youi>g man 
named Moriarty met with a most frightful 
death, the head being near y severed Irom 
his body by an ax. Fr»ra all the infor- 
mation at present available it appears the 
sher ff of Lc Sueur county attempted to ar- 
rest Mori rty, and wa.t shot by the latter 
with a revolver, the ball penetrating the 
shouhler. Moriarty then !>tarted to run and 
the sheriff in pursuit who called upon a 
fiwe<ie or Bohemian, who wa3 chopping 
wood, fii Mrike Moriarty, Wihich the latter 
dnl, using the poll yf the ax. While the 
wounded man l«»y on the ground, stunned 
by the blow, the Swede, at lh.j request of 
the rrque^t of the sheriff, used the edge of 
the ax and nearly severed the head from 
the trunk. It seems strange that any per- 
son, even at Iho desire of a sheriff, should 
should CQnwtllute himself such a butcher, 
and it is equally strange how any sberiiS' 
should make such a request.

The Country Agreeably Surprlaed 
by Propoeed Reductiona of Tax* 

The report of the tariff commission Bays 
that their theory had been to make a sym- 
metrical revision and reduction of the tar- 
iff, keeping in view the relation which each 
article en the list bore to every other. 
They had then made the rate aa low as it 
possibly could be witli a view to the suc- 
oesslul protection of American industries. 
It would be found upon a study of their 
recommendations that nothing In them • 
could be touched without injury to business 
interests aa a whole, while at tlie same time 
they had left a sutfiiient margin for the 
protection of the various manufacturing en- 
terprises which had heeu deveioped in this 
country and were at work iu competition 
with the skilled labor of ihu world. 

"There are some general features of the re- 
port which are praminent, such as the abo- 
lition almost entirely of compound duties 
and *he aduptioa of ^i>ecific rales iu {)Iace of 
a combination of both specific and ad valor- _ 
em. There has also t>een a sweeping: ' 
chance made by the abolition of ail tecs, 
charges and commisjions, which upon 
some classes of goods will be equivalent to 
a reduction of the tarilT rate. This is^pe:- 
lally true of pottery and other bulky artl- 

The tariff on Bessemer steel rails has bcei. 
reduced from $28 to $18 a ton, and on 
blooius it is put down to i of cent a pound. 
The duty ou raw wool lias been ma<le s}>eci- 
flc instead of compound as before, and has 
been slightly reduced. The commission 
recommeads that ou first-class clothing 
wools, such aa are commonly sheared in 
the weat the duty be 10 cents a pound on 
those valued at less than 30 cents and iv 
cents a nojnd on thus valued at over 30 
cents. It is the same on wools of the sec 
ond class known aa combings. The exist- 
ing tariff, which is compound, is tqmva 
lent to about I'Ji oenta a pound on an aver- 
age for such wools as are produced by th< 
weetem growers. The recommend. d tariff 
will only be atx>ut 2i ceutji leas. This h 
on unwashed wogl. Ou washed it la about 
twice aa much. On Bome\voolen goods the 
compound duties are retained, but upon 
lower grade9_there is recommended a verj 
hu-ge reduction of the tariif. The tariff ot: 
the lower "rades of woolen blankets is re-

than ever before aiid is headtd by woo<i 
pulo. Spices and all green fruits exc<.'t.i 
oranges, lemons an. I graphs are also on the 
free fist. The dye extracts and crude chem- 
icals used in the m^uuiaclure of me-Jicinei

There is a new schedule on sugars and » 
revolution In the method oi levying 
the tarifl is recommended. The commis- 
sion recommends that all sugsrs which 
are known as below trade thirteen be 
Cut able according to the polariscope test, 
abolishing the l3utch standard. Abuv*' 
this grade the coniniise>ion recommends 
the retention of the Dutch Standard i-ystem 
The effect of the rccommeiidation wouM 
be a considerable re.mctiou of the liutv. 
On oranges, lemons and grape?, the only 
dutiable fruits under the proiH)sed revision, 
there is simply a specific duty of so much 
pet box. The duty on all medical prepa- 
rations is reduceti from 40 to 25 oer cent 
ad valorem. The ad valorem duty on 
iron ore ia abolished, owiug to the varia- 
tion of values, and a specific duty of 60 
per cent a ton, which amounts to about 5 
per cent, reduction, is recommended. 
Analene dyes are now paying over 100 i>cr 
cent, and the commission recommends 
that they shall pay 40 per cent. duty. Ou 
salt there is a reduction recommended oii 
the article which comes in sacks and bar- 
rels of froai 12 cents i>er 100, the jires^n 
dnty, to 10 cents per 100, an«l upon salt ii>i 
bulk from Scents per 100 to 6 cents per 100 
Dutiea on tobacco are removed, and ih.

ng the recommendation as a whole, tl:< 
revision will involve a reducticn on tb< 
part of the tariff list, ranging in all import 
ant features from 20 to 50 per cent.. T.'i 
only notable exception is in the ca^e of t! ■ 
pottery industry, which the 
found it was iniposshle to reduce withon 
ruining the biuiueita of American manufao

will oi>orateto siini)lify the present tariff by 
the anolitionof all common duties, contra- 
dictory sections and ambigaous exprca^ioirf,

has been necessary in order, to make an ad- 
equae specific duty on the higher priced 
cloths, to make a distinction in the un- 
bleached goods at above 8 cents, bleached 
goods at above 10 cents, and on printed 
gootls above 15 Ofuts per square yard, and

mutes of the whole en consular and diplo-

A Just Condemnation ofWaehtngtoa 

Judge Mylie, of the District Court, in his 
charge to a grand jury, a few days ago, se- 
verly reprehended phases of Washington 
Journalij>m represented by the nevi-spaix-vs 
of that city, and the special correspondents 
of outside newspapers. He said the newii- 
papers were constantly containing scanda- 
lous liliels on public men and on private 
character. That was a species ol offense that 
created more uuhappiness and misery in so- 
ciety, and indeed more injustice than any 
other form of crime. He rather suspected 
that waiters for periodical newspapers had 
amon<; others more than the naual 
proportions of liars. They were 
bad foi lying. The more sensational 
the lie was the more calculated it was to 
blast the peace of families, and the spicer 
it was, the more the paper would sell and 
newspaper men would laugh in deri>ion at 
anybody who undertook to talk of them 
seriously about the injustice of a thing of 
that kind. He knew there were men of in- 
tegrity and honesty connecteil with ne;\s- 
papers, who entert&iued and cherished ho:i- 
orable and chri.->tian sentiments, and thought 
on tlie whole there was au improvemei.t 
going on in that respect. If ttie public 
would cease to patroniztt such papers as ne 
allude*] to such low rice aud crime would 
soon die out. 


The disinbcritc:<^ datighter of Rev. D. 
Bdington Barr of St Louis, is engaged in 
au effort to secure f> 000.000 left by her 
father to the Episcopal societies of that city, 
allying that tbrough intemperate hatuts 
he was unfitted to make a will. 

Thnrtday, Ji*c 7. 

SK5ATB.— The bankruptcy bills were dis- 
cussed. The principal speech was made to- 
day by Judje Garland of Arkansas, who ii 
one of the best lawyers of the body. Th« 
oi:ly impoUaat amendment which was 
aiopted was one projxised by Senator Ve«t 
and acquisced in by In^'alla, after some dis- 
cussion, which prohibits a debtor from fil- 
ing a petition in bankruptcy nnless he 
has been a re^<i'lent in the district for six 
months immedia"'ly preceding the act. 
This is to orevent the commission of fraud 
by persons who, during a temporary aljsence 
from their residence, might hie a petition 
in bankruptcy and secure a discharge with- 
out an opportunity on the part of the cred- 
itors to uow their whereabouts or inten- 

Senator Hale offered a snbstltate (or 
Beck's resolution on civil service leform 
much more sweeping in its character. Ben- 
stor Edmanda suggested that the two leso- 
lutions (Beck's and Hale's) be printed and in- 
terlined, first a lineof one aud then of the 
other to be perfectly fair. Alter a lew 
words' on motion of Senator Harrison, the 
matter went over. 

Hoots.'— In committee of the whole the 
Indian appropriation bill waa onder discus- 
sion. The only new legislation in the bill 
provides for buying the supplies in open 
market whenever bidsjoffered under contract 
contained conditions detrinieutal to the in- 
terests of the governmeiit. The bill went 
through iwith the adoption of a few 
nnimportant amendments. Representa- 
tive liayne created a flurry hy calling up 
the bilI|providing for the cetsion by llie state 
of Pennsylvania ot the hospital buii<li!i5 
and grounds at Er'e, Pa., for use as a na- 
tional hospital lor indigent soldiers. De- 
feated by a large majority. Ttie 13ib of 
December was fixed as the time for opening 
tlie tariff disc u^i on. 

Friday , X>ee. 8. 

Sesat*.— The internal revenne bill was 
recommitted to the finance committee, hut

bankruptcy bdl were di:>cussod without final 

A bill was introduced in the senate by Mr. 
McMillan, of Minnesota, to restore to certain 
scouts and soldiers of the United St.ites army 
of the Sioux nation of Indians, the money 
and annuities belonging to them, confis a'ed 
to the United States for the relief of the per- 
sons for damages sustained by depredations 
of certain baud of Sioux. A similar bill was 
introduced in the senate in 18Td. 

A very irii]->ortant amendni''nt was made 
to the pending t>ati>cr-ii;t hill by di-clarim; 
that any broker or dealer who should se.i 
options for future delivery iu stocks, giain 
or other commodity could be thrown into 
bankruptcy, unless he possessed the projvr- 
tv at the time of the sale an*l was able to 
deliver it One of the senators said pri vatt- 
ly that they propose<l to close up the il>ck 
exchange in Wall street and the Chicaijo 
board of trade if it was neoes>ary in order lo 
stop this fraudulent corner .business on all 
thft leading conimodiLieti of the nation. 

Hocsa.— Mr. Burrows (Mich.), lh>m the 
oommittee <m appropriations, reported the

Sropriation tor the current year, and $132,-

Nearly the euiire day was occupied with

Ttie Farmer's Board of Tradeof Minnasota, 
created by a state law, convened at St. Paul 
last week and were in session three days. 
President L3rman Loriog of Moorbead in the 
chair, and the following members present:

J. C. Bchofield, of Bloomington, Hennepin 
county, was unable to be present, having cut 
hia foot badly. The objects of this board 
are to consider matters pertaining to tbe 
grading and transportation of wheat and all 
othtr matters of interest to fanners which 
need legislation, and it is ttieir duty to make 
a report to the legislature reconimtmiug 
whatever legislation they have In 
their deliberations found necessary. 
Among the members there was a general 
discussion as to wheat grading, railway 
diacriiu'.natlon, etc. Mr. Coring said the 
disatisfa'^tion among tbe faruient with the 

f railing in general and the whole elevator 
auiness in particular, was- deep and wide- 
spread. H« and others spoke bitterly against 
t£« system of mixing wheat, iitid 
all averred that the proilncer ahouM 
be able to get tbe price for the quali-

should not be in danger of baviu^ Lis crop

What Shall the Winter be, 

Ttie New York Herald Wcuther Bu- 
reau has resumed editorial charge of the 
seasons to which it constantly invokes 
aUention. It says; 

The first snows ol the season on tho 
eastern side of the country, which fell 
on Sunday, were rather a surprise after 
the generally iniki autnisn. But they 
were not premature, and a comparison of 
dates at which the first heavy snows of 
former seasons occurred shows that 
those of thia week do not necessarily 
portend an early and cold winter. In 
the November preceding the memora- 
bly miUl winter of 1879-80 a stonn ef rain 
or snow extended on the 20th entirely 
over the lake region and f till further 
to the northwestward, the Signal Ser- 
vice reportin.; for that month total snow- 
falls exceeding fifteen inchoB at several 
places in this St:ite, and over seventeen 
inches in New England. Our last win- 
ter, which was exceptionally mild, was 
also preceded in November by heavy 
snow on the 23d in Eastern Pennsyl- 
vania, in Western Nt \v York to the 
depth of ei ht to twelve inches as early 
aa tho 4th, and on the 16th snow covered 
iKirtionsof the mouuUiinH of North Car- 
olina. Tho most oininoiu indication of 
an Hbnoriiially cold winter Is the occur- 
rence of exi«*«ive barometric tnaxima 
in the West and Northwest in November. 
Thus, preceding tho intensely isevero 
winter of 1876-77, there occurr^fi on 
November 27 the very extraordinary 
barometric maxiuitim of 30.- 
97 Inches in Manitoba, and 
prece<ling the nnu-sually cold winter of 
1880-Sl there was an exceptionally high 
barometer on Koveniber 23, of 30.88 in- 
ches in Ohio. The advance of such high 
pressure waves over the United Statea 
m November clearly indicates an uiiu- 
Eual refrigeration o. the nortliern pants 
of thia continent and tho northeastern 
part fif Asia, whencts our cold waves oc- 
casion.illy come, and hciK^e their ap- 
pearance signals the probable develop- 
ment of an ex.eptioiiuUy cold season m 
these lower latitudes. Hitherto, how- 
ever, we have had this season nij such 
intense baroinetic maxim-i, the highest 
nresEure reported by the f^i;:nal Service 
the presenr month being about 30.70 
inches, and that not extending over a 
wide area of tbe country. So far, there- 
fore, as the season haa now developed, 
the indications do not justify the fears 
of some that we are to have an excess- 
ively rigorous winter, but rather the con- 

ture should look into the matter and the 
board propoaes to urge the apointnient b> 
law" of a state inspector, ao that Miune»t>ta

Author ot "liome. Sweet Home." 

Mr. W. W. Corcoran'd generous enter- 
prise of bringing l.ome to an American 
grave the exiled dust of John Howard 
Payne, recalh the aged philanthropist's 
reminiscences of the poet. He saw him 
first in J809, when Payne, called "The 
American Roscius," was playing in a 
Waiihington theatre. Mr. Corcoran, who 
was then a mere boy. says: "Whenever 
1 could get 25 cents to pay for a seat^ I 
went to see and hear the tragedian;" 
and his memory of his appearance and 
action is now fresh and clear, after a 
lapse of seventy- three years. Two years 
later he saw him again, when Payne fled I 
to Georgetown from Baltimore, where 
he had been trying to defend a printing 
oflice from a mob. In 1840 the personal 
acquaintance of the two begun, and con- 
tinued on very initmate term until Payne 
went as United States Consul to Tunis 
and died there. Mr. Corcoran has sel- 
ected the spot where the poet's remains 
are to rest. It is a triangular plot, near 
tho eastern entrance of Oak Hill Ceme- 
try on the crest of a hill, overlooking the 
valley of Bock Creek. The place is 
marked by a solitary, nuignificent beech 
tree. The restains will be interred next 
spring with appropriate ceremonies, and

8ecr<*tary Teller in his report recommends 
the disarming of the Indiana and the pnr- 
cliase of their arms by the government. He 
thinks thia would remove tlie temptation to 
go upon tlie war-patli. They have no otnet 
Use lor gunH, because they have their lands 
secured to tiiem and reasonable provision 
madeforthem, ao that t!eyneetln»i fear. He 
is oppo.-'ed to the policy of giving the In- 
<liaus l.inda iu several! ty. and recf mnnnda 
ti;e pa?H*ge of a law to give each tribe a 
puleui for tbe land the government ha£ 
^tiaranteed to it, leaving the Indians to 
determine the question o( allottnieut lor 
themselves. Very niany ol Uiew! re^erva- 
t iuna cont.iin large areas of valuable land 
that cannot be cultivtted by the IndianE, 
even though they were as energetic aU'l 
luhorious as the t>est cla^s of white a:;ricul-

rtdiiccd in sire, and the surplus not neede>l

That othprs' ears have dnmk thy vowa,

The love deem'd only oars, 
Others before had brought their troth 

To fade like summer's fiowezsl 

I fain had hoped that in thy breaat 

When close to mine I'd fold thee, 
A newborn passion glowed to hear 

The words of love I told thee; 
I fain bad hoped that first for me 

The keart I press'd was beating, 
That girlhood fancies were like snow —

The spring's first blossoms let the beee 

Bip with the opening hours; 
I'd rather wait to drink the sweets 

Of summer's full- blown flowersi 
Thy youthful passions I'd believe. 

Lest greater woe befel me. 
Know not the honey of true love, 

In spite of all they tell me.

He rented at the farther end of the 
town, the ground floor of a houae wh< fle 
windowB looked into the street , and at 
the same time on the road leading do vn 
the mountain. It waa not the beantj of 
site that bad induced that choice, but the 
peaceful calmness and the pure and fra- 
grant air which pervadea that part. 11 ju- 
ry >'ay was blind. 

lie was about fifteen, when hlfl e (re-

ually weaker. A very strange dimnesg 
fell over his eyes, and soon be had to 
give up reading new music; for Henry, 
young as he was, bad already made his 
mark asa violiniat. One morning all vas

when, placing himself before the Btin,

i.s to 

of flio B ! 

Mr.Key dare not tukoupon hiui.selfali the 
responsibility. Besides, t hw hesitat ion 
could not comproraipe the suiojss of .he 
undertaking . The pret-ocious child vas 
develupinjE rapidly, and the father re- 
solved to let him decide later on. In the 
meantime they went from place to plice, 
traveling almosl constantly. For Heory 
whose smallest wishes were never de- 
nied, waa led on by that feverish ailiv- 
ity and want of ctiange which delu led 
him to hope f jr a ray of light. 

Five vears had gone by. They wer» 
living at Meiiton, as everywhere ilse, 
very Bccludod.and were aeldora out be- 
fore evening. The niorniiij^s were gi ?en 
to reading, the afternoons to mi »ic. 
The old master accompanied on the p auo 
89 well as hi:* elitfened flnijers w« uld 
allow hiiii to follow the brilliant impr vis- 
iations of bis son. It was the boy s ' >aly 
Joy to give way tbiw, for hour at a time, 
to'tbe Sinciful strains of his imagination. 
Notes Bparkled like a jet of fire uider 
his (apricioiis brow- then long, meau- 
choly strains would follow— full of re- 
grets and tears for the loat treasure . 

One cool evening; Henry, leaning: on 
his father walked to the sea-shore. He 
wit on the sand, and there, motion esa, 
his attention centered on the das! ing 
waves, he was trying to perceive, dis- 
tinct from one anothf^r, Iheinnumer ii;lo 
eounda which compose the monotonous 
harmony cf the sea. 

Another day they walked to the 
woods, following the road tliat paeed 
near the house. Alter half au hour the 
boy stopped. 
"Father, you are tired?" 
"Not in the least," answarod the old 

"Yon could not deceive me." resumed 
the bliud boy, smiling. "Your .ane 
stumbles at each step. Fortunately, 
here we are; I hear the wind rusiUig 
among the leaves." 

"Not ()uite >eL We are walkingulong 
the railinE of a park, whose trees pro- 
ject their branches among the leave i." 

Just then the silence of that rnlrn 
night was broken by a few harmomous 
chords from a piano; then, aflerapiuse, 
the invisible musician played the "Hong 
of the Star" in Tannhauser. 

llenry stopped his iiand restini 
his father's arm. 

"Is it where the light shines? 

"Let us listen. Do you mind?" 
"With pleasure." 

After the "Song of the 8tar" ram© 
almost without interruption a waltz of 
Chopin, played with feverish rap dity, 
as it tlie artist lacked time to6ni!-h it. 
.\fler the waltz a nocturne, with tenti- 
mental variations, expressive of :.'rand 
despair. Then, all at once, silenci :iiul 

J.irkiie?s resumed their sway. Tho 
i:jht had vanished with the last sotinds. 
"We have heard a real artist," eaid 
Mr. Nay, taking hfe son by the ant . 

Henry did not aii<^wer, but he tho ight, 
"it wasa womanl" 

With tho s^acity of the blind, whose 
other Ben.-es are Wc;nderfully keen and 
delicate, he had recoj^nized the woman 
in the nervousness ol the touch ard in 
the p«net rati i!g emotion of the lenti- 
ment. lie had even divined th»' ohe 
was A fofferer, from the erratic choice of 
her music, and the brusque transition of 
uierrimeutto sadness and the \aried 
.shadeH of her play. 

The next day, as he qucstioneit the 
old woman who waited on them, he 
heard that the villa belonged toMr Val- 
nncourt, a gentl-^mcn from Paris, who 
h;'.d lx)Ught it for bis daughter J adel- 
Mite, "a poor young lady who s«omed 
very ill." 

On that evening Henry did not men- 
tion that bo wanted to go again to^rards 
the park. He only said be wished to 
bring his violin in case he should ake a 
faui-y to improvise a serenade to the 
1 stars. That dav and the following, Mr. 
J Nay and his son spent the whole even- 
Lux on the beach. 

"Shall we goto the woodr sad Mr. 
Nay one morning; it is nearer, a id we 
c hall return earher, for the nights are 
getting cooi" 
The young man repressed a ami e. 
"Lei us go to the ivooda," he waa 
seemiDgly indifferent. , 

It waa dusk when they reached the vu- 
b. Madeleine, alon.^ in her roo n, was 
it tho pi-ino pitying tiie "Eltgy oi 

Ilenrv seized his violin, and, stand- 
ing on the road, tivmbling with *xcit©- 
incnt, he rc'i>eated like au eel o, the 
melodv be bad beard. 

At the brst notes Madeleint rose 
sudleilyand looked out wonderingly, 
then closed the window. 

"lam watched,' she thought, and 
she blushed. 
Tiie vioUu was silent. 
A minute later the girl open* d the 
cui tain.s^and trio. I to see throuj:h the 
impenetrable outside. But all 
in vain. After the first fueling had 
subsided, curiosity had awakene*!.. 
"Who can it be*' she thought. 
Henry Nay went home out of sorts, 
and well awaie that lie bad dlturbed 
her solitude. And yet he nturned 
every night with ui.s violin. Onf would 
have thought that ho endeavored, in 

I inspired top rovicwitions, to'impk <r« for- 
pi\cne98an<l CApress theleelings which 
wtre u;?itati:iiJ: him. . 

13 ;t the villa was buned in eilenie 
and obecuriiy. This irritated hiui to the 

lu.-^t lUgree. _ ,,, 

"It is all over!" said he one day. "I 
otlended her. Once more I sljul 
and then I shall leave the country." 

Ho w^ wearily druuged tlie hoiJS. At 
sun.=et his father led him on, geutly hu- 
moring what h« called a "romaotit fancy." 
Henry played a prelude, ai d com- 
menced the " Jilegy of Ernst.'' TJ te melo- 

dy was to bid her farewell. FblatHv 
and sonorous, the notes fell in the peace* 
fol night , ^, . , 

Suddenly he started, and his bow Al- 
most slipped through his fingers. A joy 
unspeakable pervaded all his being. 
The piano, timid at first, then more di». 
tinct, was following the violin. It was 
Mai'eleine, who encouraged gradually, 
was playing the aceomjianiment of (he 
"Elegy.'^ The duo would liave been 
prolonged far into the night had, Mr. 
Nav allowed it 

On bis way home Henry was silent 
and grave. His voice had a tinee of 
sadness when he wished his father 
enod-night As they parted, he called 
him back. 


"What is it, my sonf 

"Nothing to m )rrow." 

Henry had changed hla mind. He 
did not sleep that night As huurs 

Eassed away he evoked the memories of 
is childhood to tiave some idea of 
Madeleine's home, and, above all. of her 
person. What was she Uke? He re- 
called to mind the image of the young 
ladies he had seen. He could see her, 
fir»t slender, graceful aud fair, tlien 
dark, with classical features and fiery 
eyes; he could iK>t think of her as not 

The next morning Mr. Nsy sntersd 
bis room early. 

"Father," said he hurriedly, "I have 
made up my mind. Will you write to 
Dr. Desmarres?" 

"Have you thought it well over?" 
a»ked .Mr. Nay, growing very pale. 

"It le no risk to run," answered Hen- 
ry. "NoUiing can be worse than my 
present state. Besides I have refiected 
seriously, and am quite resolute," he 
ad'iod in a firm voice. \ 

Mr. Nay telegraphed immediatfeiy to 
Dr. Deamarres and two days later the 
voung and celebrated oculist arrived at 

"When shall I see the hght, doctor?" 
eagerly asked Henry. 

'^It will be a week; for that time you 
will remain in this room, in the moatalv 
solute obscurity and silence, but after 

"After that— I shall see Madeleine," 
Uiought Henry, who did not care what 
more the doctor had to sav. 

That evening and the next Madeleins 
waited ir vain. The third day she be- 
came sad and anxious. Had the un- 
known musician who understood her so 
well grown weary? Had he left the 
town? Strange thoughts troubled her. 
No, he had not gone. Consumption, 
that terrible disease, seemed to gain 
ground as the poor child gave way to 
her somber misgivings. A terriUe pre- 
eentiment agitated her. 

She hardly lived except for the honr 
when hf-r mysterious friend wis to ap- 
pear. The time come, she was at the 
piano playing their favorite melodies; 
then, opening the window, bending 
down, she would listen and try to learn 
Komethiug of the dark night. 

One evenin<; she fancied she heard 
steps on the road. In the thoughtless- 
uess of her excitement, ?he rushed out 
in her thin muslin dress, bare-heHded, 
her ahoulders hardly protected by the 
IJK'lu tissue that covered them. Like a 
pliadow she glided on through the 
winding paths and opened the aide boor 
of the park. 

It was a latx>rer returning from his 
day's work, a sjude on his shoulder. 
Just the he humioed a merry tune, soon 
lost in the distance. 

Madaleine remidned, leaning against 
the wall her burning forehead, and her 
lit lid l<:>et in reverie. She did not feel 
ibu cool evening breeze and the scarcely 
petcei'lible drops of rain tliat fell on her 
shoulddrsi. A painfol idea absorbed her. 
"He uill come no more!" All of a sud- 
den a violent chill shook her frcm bead 
to loot; she went in doors, fainting, sick 
at heart, and laid down with burning 

Ten days aft*r that fatal evening, Hen- 
ry Nay in his room, with drawn cur- 
tains still, was expecting the visit of the 
Menton doctor, whom Dr. Desmarres 
'.id left ill charge, fully instructed after 
ti.o open'.tion. The success was com- 
plete. Henry was t^lind no longer; but 
Ilia eyes were gradually brought to bear 
the light. For u few days he had gone 
w ithout a folil over them, and that very 
morning the doctor waa to open the thick 
lurtaini and let him behold the light of 
hcavon, the dazzling brilliancy of the 

The doctor entered, followed by Ms. 
Nay. Henry was agitated with great

An excellent fertilizer for boose plants 
is a weak solution of rotten manure. 
The danger is in manuring too highly, 
by which the plant is forced into a suc- 
culent and weak growth of stem and leaf, 
which is apt to be unhealthy. For flow- 
ering plants very moderate fertilising 
only is required, and the moderate 
growth thus lohured secures a more vig- 
orous bloom than from overgrown and 
highly manured plants. It is better to 
use moderate rich soil for potting and 
depend upon that rather than upon 
stimulating fertilizers. As a substitute 
for manure a teaspoonrul of guano in a 
gallon of water serves excellently. 

Colonel Corps's recommendation to 
cover strawberry plants for the winter 
before very cold weather sets in, while 
they are yet fresh an<l ifrcen. Is very well 
where the bent kind of material is at 
hand, su^ as leafy bush or cornstsilks, 
which do not pack down with the weight 
of snow, and so deprive the leaves of 
light and air. If t>traw or leaves be used, 
it is Wst to apply Ihem late, after the 
ground has frozen and snowfiiUen, to re- 
tain these as long »i possible. Snow is 
the perfection of shelter for such plants

•«It would seem, therefore, that ia 
resring animals for the dairy , care should 
be taken that the young are not so fed as 
to develop s tendency to great size either 
in frame or adipose tissue, or so as to 
establish in the end a race which has 
every faculty except that of producing 
milk. I would not advocate a deficiency 
of food for young dairy stock, but I would 
argue against an excess of articles of a 
highly stimulating quality. The plan of 
the Scotch farmer is undoubtedly a 
good one— to take their calves 
early from th dam. feed them 
from the dish, snd bring them to 
solid fowl or pasture as soon as the con- 
dition of the young stMmacb will allow. 
Instead of Unseed meal thoy use a great 
quantity of oatmeal— an article of food 
much less predisposing to fat and keep- 
ing up a vigorous growth. Wo have m 
tins country a good quality (»f hay, every- 
where a ba-is of feeding; and after the 
calf is weaned, or after she has had milk 
enough to give her a fair introduction 
into life, hay in the form of hay-t«a and 
afterward of rowen, is undoubtedly the 
bi'Bt food the animal can have, especial- 
ly when aided by a few roots, such as 
turnips or carrots. In such ca=e8 milk 
is abundant at a very early age, aud 
skimmed milk is advantageously used as 
a substitute. I should not recommend 
the use of grain, especiajly 
that containing a suberabundance of oily 
malter, as Indian corn and linseed, for 
young dairy ►tock, or even for dairy 
cows when in the flush of milk. Per- 
haps corn meal, sparingly, or bailey, or 
oatmeal may l)e used iu winter should 
the animal ^eem not to thrive well. But 
a calf that i-* properly weaned and fur- 
nished with a ifoo 1 pasture, will be car- 
ried through the first winter moet sat- 
isfactoilly on Kood, hay,eBv>eciaily 
rowen, with roots. In this way can a 
uniform and well balanced animal be 
produced, which, when put to dairy 
service, will not become course and raw- 
boned In appearance, nor take on flesh 
at the expense of the milk pail." 

Licciittousnoas in Un^laud. 

In a recent sermon Bishop Fraser, ol 
Manchester, said: It was the moral life 
of the nation that seemed to him iu 
peril Just row— the life and well-being ol 
the people. Some people thought that 
intemperance was the greatest curse 
hanging over England at the present 
moment. He did not think so. There 
was, no doubt, a residnm who were 
cursed with that terrible curse of intem- 
perance; but there were other 
curses more deadly still. Peo- 
ple uiight be perfectly temperate as far 
aa alcoholic drinks were concerned, and 
yet their lives might l>e niiything but ac- 
cording to that which had been laid 
down for them. And seeing what he 
saw and hearing what he heard he dis- 
tinctly said that he believed that licen- 
tiousness was the sin which was eating 
out tiie moral hfe «f this nation, that 
licentiousness which they saw rampant 
through the streets of Mausheeter every 
evening that they moved through those 
streets. "That was a curse which in pul- 
pits they hardly dared to mention for 
fear of shocking some delicate tnste, 
but it needed to be mentioned some- 
times, when they know the ravat^es It 
was causing on every side. This is a 
word fitly spoken in season; and it is 
the duty of the clergy in Avnerica to 
imitate the fearlessness and honesty of 
Bishop Fraser, in touching on the mag 
nltude of the social 

nearly half that sum, and 
good army, too.

<Jareer of a Bank Robb^. 

The story of Reuben Porter Lee, who 
his juat been sentenced to ten years in 
the penitentiary for emVteziling §200,000 
from the First National bank of Buflialo, 
reads like a romance. Entering the in-

money by discounting his own, his wife's

the ten per cent, of the bank's capital 
stock, which ia the highest limit allowed 
to any single borrower. He allowed the

No money or pains are spared to maks 
our largs and expansive houses con- 
venient in all parts. From garret to 
cellar every modern invention for com- 
fort is introduced. In th« kitchen the 
cook ia furnished with all possible helps 
for fiacilitating her work and making it 
easy. The laundress has water, hot or 
cold, at her command by the simple 
turning of a faucet, and all that is nsc- 
eaitiry to dispose of it, after it has been 
used, ia the withdrawing of tho plug in 
the bottom of ihe wash-tub. The wait-

In the hilmble home, huwever, where 
one pair of tired hands lias of'.entiines 
Id ).(i'ornin'l thnvxaikTor the f'liiiiy, 
there is almost nlwuvs a dearth of these 
conveniences. All -.'f the water used for 
every purpose must often be pumped 
and carried quite a distance. Tubs must 
lie lifted, filled, aud emptied, and iLa 
waste water, perhaps, be thrown into a 
drain some ways from the house. An 
em!les« amount «f hea\7 labor must be 
iione tlirou.^h with each day, and es- 
pecially on washing day. 

Many steps might be saved and the 
burden of many a Imck lightened by the 
oxerciBe of a little ttiousiht and a email 
outlay of money. The husband, taken 
up with hif daily routine of work, lired 
out, perhaps, when be returns home at 
ni:.;iit, olten does not appreciate how 
iicavy the burden is which his patient 
wife has to bear; he does not note the 
tired look, and see that the roses ate 
fading from her cheeVp The change is 
gradual but sure. A mother giving her 
very life to her chililren and devoting 
hereelftothem night and day. who is 
obliged to perform tlie household duties 
of lier family should have the manual 
labor of her home reduced to the small- 
est minimum. Every possible appliance 
which tan be use<l to les.sen her work 
should Ije j.rovided. The cooking ar-

fhe first character which Ml^a Stoepol 
plaved at Daly's was the voung daughter 
in ''Od.-tte," .ind her ciuef taslc was to 
ask her youthful sweetheart to marry 
her. She accomplished it with a ^ativo 
fiiinplicity and charming ingenousnesn 
tliat was highly admired by the audience. 
I'erhaps the fact that her fat ;er, Rob- 
ert Stoepel, sat in the orchestra leader's 
chair helped her to appear dilferenl and 
modest in her reversal of the usual fkiflh- 
ion of courtship. As for the effect upon 
Henry Miller, the gnod-looking juvenile 
actor whom she highly solicited to be-

Rotbchild was the third boo ut a 
banker at Frankfort 'There ^m not," 
he said, "room enough for all Itj the city. 
I dealt in English ftoods. One great 
trader came there who had the market 
all 10 himself; he was quite tlie great 
man, and did us a favor if he sold os the 
giods. Somehow I offended him, and 
he refased to Bhow us bis patterns. Tliia 
was on Tuesday. I said to my f.itiier, 
will Ko 10 England.' I could speak uothing

Working In n kitchen which is several 
feet l)elow the other part of the house, 
BO that the fta^sagtj into the dining-room 
requires coming up and down stairs 
should be avoided. When there is but 
one step it may be remedied by making 
au inclined floor between the rooms. 
r. When there are a number of steps, how- 
deserves all the puniahment he | ever, it would be better to di^ipense with 

' the out kitchen altogether if pobaible, 
rather than take the chances of ruined 
health by such constant use of stairs. 
A small amount of money carefully 
expended will bring tlie water to be 
used by the fa;nily within doors, and 
will provide a drain. The idea of a 
mother of Utile children bein^ obliged 
carry heavy pails of water ia all kinds 
o weather, dispose of all the dishwater, 
and suds, and bring in the coal and wood 
perhaps from the barn is all wrong, 
tf such Ihiugs have to be done at all, if 
here are no arraiij^'ements otherwise, 
they have to be done every day in the 
year. I lie one pair of hands must per- 
orin the task, no matter how tired and 
worn the feeble woman may be. Over- 
work of this kind, so unnecessary, is the 
secret of much of the ill health which 
surrounds us on all sides. Yonn^ wo- 
men, anxious to save and econonuze, bo 
that tbev may have aomething laid by 
for the future, and their own homes, try 
to do too raueii wliile they are raising

Shod For Li 

From the B(»ton Herald. 

An eccentric gentleman vlslteU • 
Boeton shoe store recently and 
<7ot a pair of sho<»3 which he Bad ordered. 
The price therefor was |15. He cheer- ■ 
fully paid that sum. He then asked for j 
a shet:t of paper, and on it stated that j 
he had at lost got a pair that suited iiito. I 
On the same sheet be wrote a schedule | 
of what he presumed would be all he | 
wuoVl want during his "natural Ufe" in \ 
the way o< frx)t gear, inciuding bootaand 
shoes of varioua -'-wles, quahties and 
patterns; slippers rubtn>.- i,f« .!,« as^ 
irrtttate being 256 pairs. He then gk^;/!- 
verbal order to have the epecihed 
goods mauufactured, and as an earnest 
of his sincerity, gave a check for |100 a» 
partial payment in advance. The dealer 
was well pleased with his customer, and 
declares his uiteuliou of Clling the order, 
which, ha admita, waa a good ona. 

Hiil's Hair and Whisker Dye, 50 cents. 

Opinion of Dr. \Vm. U. Stokes, phvsician, 
Mt. Hope Retreat, Baltimore: "I have 
areat pleaiure in adiiing my testimonv to 
Ke virtues of Colden'a Liquid Be*f Tonic 
as the very best preparation naed for d^ 
p ession, weakness and ind»gMtaon, and 
then-fore confidently recommend it to tb« 
m^Hlical profession.'^ ( Remember the name, 
Coldeu'a—taka no other.) Ot drugguit^ gen- 

cheap, and miule cood profits. I noon 
found that there were three profits— on 
the raw material, the dyeicg and 
manufacturing. I said to the 
manufacturers: .1 will supply you 
with the material and dye. and you sup- 
ply me with manufactured goods, ho I 
got three profits instead of one, and I 
could sell goods chetper than anybody. 
In a verv ftbort time 1 increased my 
£20,000 to more than £lO0,fH)0. 

'•.Uy siicce.59 nil turned on one maxim. 
I said 1 can do what iiaottier mau can, 
and so I am a match for the man with 
the patterns, and all the rest of thern. 
Another advantage I had— I was an off- 
band roan; I made a bar,fain at once. 
When I settled n London the V:a8t India 
rompanyhiul £800,f»(>0 of gold to sell. 
1 went to the nale and bouglit it all. 1 
knew the Duke of Wellington must have 
it for the pay of his army in the Tenin- 
8u!a I had bought a great many of his 
bills at a discount. The government 
sent for me, and said they must have it. 
When they got it they didn t know bow 
to get it to Portugal. I undertx)ok all 
that, and 1 sent it throogh France, and 
that was the best business I ever did.

We have the pleasure of chron- 
icling i>ne of the most pleasant so- 
«ial oventa of the seaaon which oc- 
curred in oar midst last week. The 
weather, which previously had j 
been unfuvorable, seemed to entwr 
into the spirit of the occauion and | 
put on a holiday attire. The resi- 
dence was tastily decorated with 
evergreens and natural flowers 
formed a beautiful arch over the 
folding doors, beneath which the 
young rouple tuok their position 
during the important ceremony. 

Your correspondent was permit-

At a recent funoral in New Hampshire 
or thereabouts, a doctor of divinity be- 
sought the Almigh y "that our Uvea 
may not bo in a parabola, vandering 
farther and farther from Thee till they 
are Ici^t in the infinite darknes i, but may 
their orbits be in an eclinee, tl at we may 
ever draw near to Thee." 

The effort to enforce the i ew penal 
Sunday code in New York reminds the 
Buffalo Commercial Advertis -r of the 
sign board wt.ich for several rears stood 
at the entrance to the Whirlpiol Itapids 
just below Niigara Falls. "Tlie Wliiri- 
nool will be closed ou .Sundays!' But the

The Worcester and Nashua I^iilroad 
have in daily service two vetennenginea 
which present a striking contr ust to the 
modern 40 ton locomotive, with its enor- 
mous i)oiler, tieavy gtoain preisnre, big 
ivlinders, an<l other iip'ovenitints com- 
bined to f-irni-h powi-r and sp.-ed. The

were original v wood burners, with the 
cut-off and drop motion, I'Ut when

Thurlow Weed's death bet' afTidavit

denounced now as he was in I iie second

will probably never be settled. 

The Chicago Milwaukee & St. Paul 
railroad company baa raised the wages 
of its freight train employes, w th a view 
to at-cnring the best wrvice po wible and

The value of old coins is wh >lly arbl- 
trary. and depends upon the desire of 
some collector to possess then. There 
is no market value for them, an 1 if at any 
sale no person has a partJcut ir desire 
for any on«, it has no more Vilue than 
for the metal it contains or ita actual 
circula'ing va'ue as money. Fome per- 
sons who are collecting coins f< r 
ment give extrava/ant prices for rare 
specimens to complete a seriei. Aa an 
instance the following circimstance 
may be referred to: At a recen meeting 
of the American Numismatic Sticiety, F. 
C. Frothingham exhibited a col ection of 
American copper cents from 17v3 to 18.57. 
This is said to bo tiie finest col ection in 
the countrv, and was collected at a cost 
of over $3,000. For the cent of 1804,1125 
was paid, and for that of 18UG, idOO."

William Hog>;att, better ki own aw 
"Omaha Bill," who was burned to death 
iu the caboose of one of the trai aa which 
was wrecked by the collision on the 
Centr.d Pacific railroad, near DaTiaville 
last Saturday, was iu mauy respects a re- 
markable character. His pareita are in 
comfortable circamstances and reside in 
the state of Ohio. At the age ol 18 years 
"Bill" left home, with hia fath Jr's con- 
sent, and began his railroad 1 f e aa a 
brakeman. lie afterward aerved as fire- 
man, engineer and conductor, I ut never 
fonsook the rail. He was 6 feet 6 inches 
taU. And his strength was prodigious. 
>o man of equal physical powera ever 
rode on the top of a box-car. tie was 
application he would be placed at work 
ajcain. His liberality was priverbiul. 
No railroadman in distress e>er asked 
for his aid in vain, and his deal h, at tiie 
early age of 30 years, will be mot t keenly 
felt by those wtiom he thus befriended. 
He was in the caboose, getting I. is lighta

The Worcester and Nashua Railroad

modern 40 ton locomotive, with its enor- 
mous l)oiler, heavy steam pressure, big 
ivlinders, andotJier iiiproveraents com- 
bined to firiii.«li power and speed. The 
veterans are the Worcester and Har- 
Tard, the former having begun running 
about 18-19, and the hitter in 1S58. Both 
were orij;inal v wood burners, with the 
cut-off and drop motion, but when

The Chicago Milwaukee & SL Paul 
railroad company baa raised the wages 
of its freight train employes, with a view 
to securing the best service possible and 
retaining that permanently. The pay of 
conductors has been increased from $70 
to $75 a month, and biakemen, who 
commence on $+.5, afrer three month's 
service ••eceive $50, after six months, ^55

ductorship to all reliable men. 

The value of old coins Is wholly arbi- 
trary, and depends upon the desire of 
some collector to poa-mss them. There 
is no market value for them, and if at any 
sale no person has a part'cular desire 
for any one, it has no more value thin 
for the metal it contains or its actual 
circulating value as money. Fome per- 
soim who are collecting coins for amuse- 
ment give extravagant prices for rare 
specimens to complete a series. As an 
instance the following; clrcum.staace 
may be referred to: At a recent meeting 
of ihe Anieritnn Nuiid''matic society, F. 
C. Frothingham exhibited a collection of 
American copper cents from 1793 to 18.57. 
This id siiid to be the tinest collection in

The Omaha Railroad Swallowed by 
the Norihweatern— New OfUoera— 
Vanderbilt ia tha Rin^. 

The anticipated revolution in the St. Pauj 
lie Ouiahn railroad took place in Naw York 
on Saturday last. Pres. H. IT. Porter of Vhe 
Omaha tendered his resignation, and Mar- 
vin Ilughitt, of tb« Northwestern was elect- 
ed in his place. In the directory, all hos- 
tile an •! hgurebead interests were peremptor- 
ily retired. H. H. Porte.-, H. K. Bishop, 
Beioaiiiin Brewster, R. R. Cable, E. F. 
Drane, Welles, Fische and Kouiitz gave 

Cldc to William H. and (Cornelius Vander- 
tit and Aug.istuaSchell. from New York, 
Wbt-at, Ke<>p and Marvin Ilughitt 
of the N'ortiiweitteru and Me^8rs. 
dykes, Twombly and Epoouer. 

David Dows, a hnding light In 
th( Rnck Inland, holds his grip, aa do W. 
1). Washburn, A. U. Wilder and U. P. 
Flower. Mr. Sawyer siid bc\d% his seat on 
the board, but h« baa been bounced from 
the vice presidency to give- place to W. L. 
Sykes, who has also ijeen elected secretary 
and treasurer. 

The significance of these changes is that 
Vanderbi.t and the Northwestern w»r« 
forced to take this step to protect their 
own intereitf. In the recent fi^fat they 
were iu chancery, and could niaka no d«- 
fense nor take the ag^essive, as is the poli- 
cy of the company when its interests are as- 
sailed. By securing the control of the Oma 
ha they could control the tratHc 
of an immense area of territory, and Lave 
a system in magnitude and effectiveness 
second to none op. ♦^e continent. By this 
acquisition the Northwestern controls about 
the same mi eageas the Milwaukee & St. 
Paul, and will be aMe to pool V'aa and 
eartiiinfJ on an eqnal b«»ia.

A Western Brakeman* 

From the San Francisco Chronicle. 
^ William lloggatt, better known u 
"Omaha Bill," who was bnmed to death 
iu the caboose of one of the trains which 
was wrecked by the collision on the 
Central Pacific railroad, near Daviaville 
last Saturday, was in mauy respects a re- 
markable character. His parents are in 
comfortable circumstances and reside in 
the state of Ohio. At the ago of 16 years 
"Bill" left home, with his father's con- 
sent, and began his railroad life as a 
brakeman. lieafierward served as fire- 
man, engineer and conductor, but never 
forsook the rail. He was 6 feet 6 inches 
tall. And his strength was prodigious. 
No man of equal pliysical powers ever 
rode on the top of a box-car. Ha was 
application he wouhl be placed at work 
ajjaiu. His liberality was proverbiul. 
No railroadman in distress ever asked 
for h>s aid in vain, and his death, at the 
earlyageofSOyears, will be most keenly 
Jelt by those wnom he thus befriended. 
He was in the cabjone, getting his light! 
read? for ose when the collision oc- 
empioyeu atamerent tunes 07 aimoR 
every company in the country, 
and there is not a railroad man 
of any prominence to whom he 
was not known as "Omaha," or who will 
not regret his tragic fate. His habits 
were peculiar, but his integrity was un- 
questioned. He never remained on any 
line more than six montlia at a time. 
He wonld always give due notice of hia 
intention to "move on," and leave his 
employers in an honorable manner. In 
the course of a year or two be would 
stride into the superintendent's office 

again, with tlie remark, "Well, Mr. , 

here I nra again. Any clmnco to catch 
on?" The division i-nperintcndents all 
over the union appreciated hia worth,

curreu, anu u can oe tniintuuy aaid tiiHt

The government method In Togne for 
cleaning the brass parts of different 
articles found in ordnance, Ac, in 
claimed to be the most effective known. 
A mixture of one part common nitric acid and 
one-half part suit>huTic acid is made in a 
stone jar. a pail of Iresh water and a box ol 
aawdiut being also provided ready at hand. 
Tbe articles to he cleaned ara dipped in the 
acid, then 'remove*! into the water, afVer 
which they are rubbed with the Mwduet. 
This operation immediately chanj^es tbeni 
to a brilliant color. If the' brass is greasy, 
it is first dipped in a strong solutforl of 
potash and soda in warm water, this appli- 
cation teuiiir.g to cut 'he grease so that the 
arid has power to act. This method haa 
the a.dvantage of a greater degree of per- 
manency than others.

Bingham, as chairman of the p< st-oflio-

argument favorable to this clause, 
but was antagonized by Mr. Reagan of 
Texas, formerly postmaiter general ofthe 
Southern Confederacy. The latter claimwl 
that the reduction asked for would decrea: e 
the postal revenues upward of $8,000,000, 
but he foon d few tuiporters for his theory.

claims of American dtixens for

since 1881. The amount involved ia not 
known, althou:;h it is estimated to b« in the 
vicinity of $3U,00>,0<J0, computing interot. 
The bill is so framed a- not to be subjiet to s

would not vote for it. Nevtrtheksa, he was

to the constitution of the United States, pro- 
vi ling that jws masters, revenue collectors, 
judges, mar.slials of the United St ares, district

Ha would not be hypocritical about tlie sut>-

come into power it ou^ht to purity the civil 
service by making a thorough and radical 
change of olfice-holders, excepting only 
soldiers who had serve! their country and

Senator Sherman said that he favored

Physical iSxerclse For GIrla. 

An English writer believea that books 
and lectures directed against fashionable 
absurdities find readier acceptance with 
men than with the sex in whose interest 
they are promulgated, because men look 
at the matter in the cold, clear light oi 
ftbetract reason, and in the strong sense 
which adapte means to ends, while theit 
wives and daughters are under the 
thraldom of the despot fashion, and are 
bhnd to all considerations save those ol 
paying implicit obedience to nis imperi- 
ous dictates. An enduring reform ij 
not to be looked lor as a consequence ol 
the fulminalions of professors and doo- 
tors, however strongly urged and backed 
up by weight of argument and diagram, 
but as the outcome of the requirement* 
of modern Ufe. It may b«» postulated 
that the women of a mition fond of out- 
door life, and sport involving exertion, 
will, at any rate, during the time spent 
m exercise, study to some extent the 
necessity of a fit garb, and oue adapted 
to the requirements of the free play of 
body and limbs. 


isugar from Sor^um Cone 

The Chicago Journal of Commerce sayg 
of the manufacture of sugar from sor- 
ghum cane, by patented process, in 
Champaign coui:ty, IlUnois; "A lar^e 
factory, with the best sugar making 
machinery, has been erected, several 
hundred acres of cane grown, and the 
manulactore begun. The first result m- 
dicate a great succ-ess of the experi- 
ment, as at the first effort 2,000 pounds 
of dry C sugar and a syrup of fine qual- 
ity were produced, both destitute ol the 
sorghum taste." It adds "The people 
are greatly elated lover the succesi 
reached." This may be the discovery 
long desired; and if it is not, it is almost 
cerUin that some process will be dis- 
covered by which the sorghum cane, 
grown in as favorable a climate as Cen- 
tral Illinois, can be turned into excel 
ent tugar.

One of Those Queer Stories for Which 
There is No Explanation. 

From Lippincott's MaKOt'ne. 

Tne following was related to me'by the 
gentleman to whom it happened, and 
whontt I shall call Mr. Kennedy. It was 
mentioned in the moet commonplace 
way in the ordinary course of conversa- 
tion--nota3a supernatural occurrence, 
but simply as a singular and puzzling ex- 
perience. There is a long and very nar- 
row strii. of wooded land, known as 
'Teg Alley's Point," situated between 
the main stream of Allies river and one 
of the navigable creeks which flow into 
it. This htlle peninsula is about two 
imles long, from fifty to two or three 
hundred yards in width, bounded 
bv deep waLer and overgrown 
with pine and underbrush. There 
18 a tradition that many years ago a 
party of Bahii.iore ovstermen encamped 
on the point, among whom was a man 
"^L"ed AUev, who had abandoned bis 
wife. The deserte.l followed up 
her husband and found him at the camp 
where some words passed between them, 
the resi-dt of which was that the man in- 
duced hu wife to follow him into a 
thicket an 1 there murdered her with a 
club. The point has ever since been 
known bv Pfn Alley's name, and her 
perturbed spirit has been supposed to 
haunt the 8<-ene of her untimely taking 
off. Mr. Kennedy ha.l lived from boy- 
hood on the place aud had never jjiven 
a serious tliou;,'ht to the story. Two or 
IrJiw^ ^'*"." ='«o he had a party ofrail- 
splittersatworkou the point, the foreman 
wiio finally refused to go back, declar- 
ing that queer things happenetl down 
there and that he IkuI seen a ghosL His 
emnloyers laughed at him and dismissed 
the matter from hi.«. n.ind. Some time 
after this Mr. Ivennedy had occasion to 
ride through the woods ,)ne aitomoou 
to look alter somn ehoep there beinit 
but one road and the water on either 
aide. As he approached the point his 
iiorae started viulenilv and refused to bo 
<>», rogartllesw of whip and spur. L«K>k- 
in;,. awut for the cause of lixis unusual 
ri^'fit he saw a woman rise up fnim a 
log upon which she had been sittinL' a 
*ew yards in advance, and stand by tlie 
road-side, ookina at him. Khikwas verv 
poerly clnd in a faded cali.;ilres8 and 
wore a hmp-gunlj-,nnet,.;jlr iwneath 
which her thmjet-bhi k hfir straggled 
over her shonldore. Her face wjis thin 
and sallow and her eves black and pierc- 
ing, kno\ving that she bad no business 
tfiere, and occupied in controlling 
his horse, he called to her somewhat 
angrily to get out of the way, as the an- 
imal was afiaid of her. She turned and 
walked .slowl;- into the thicket, without 
a word, looking back at lum as she went 
With much difticultv he forced hi.s 
horee to the ppot, winhing to find out 
who the intruder might be, but no trace 
ol any one could be found after a care- 
ful search, altlioush there was no place of 
com^alment and no poRsible wav of 
escape, for which, indeed, there was not 
sufhcient time. Mr. Kennedy declared 
that the thought of Pe« A lley nfiver en-

How PotatoerWerePoptilarized. 

M. Parmentier in 1783 introduced po- 
tatoes into France in a novel manner. 
Having planted a considerable breadth 
of potatoes at Montreuil, near Paris, he 
gained an audience with the unfortunate 
Louis XVI, in the course of which he 
iiLsplred his majesty with ide^s ol the 
value of the potato. 

"But how are we to make people eat 
what they are prejudiced against?" in- 
quired the king. 

"Sir, if your majestv will graciously 
an ird me a little aid. that prejudice wUl 
be removed," said M. Paruieutier. 

"To overcome prejudice is difficult, 
but how can I aid you. M. Plarmentier?" 
"If your majesty will graciously order 
that a soldier shall mount guard in my 
Dotato field at MoutreiiU, potatoes shall 
t>e tbe tasnion lu less than sis months." 
The king laughed atid granted Par- 
roentier's reouesU Thenceiorward a 
wiliury guaru might be seen promena- 
ding with measured tread the naturalist's 
potato field. How precious must that 
btue-fiouered plant be, thought the 
lookers-on. No more fear of leprosy — 
no more dread of poisoning. The high- 
est people in France were proud to eat

Cord Wood. 

Owing to the fact that the H. & 
D. Railroad company is not buying 
wood this winter in this county, 
th<» price has dropped somewhat in 
th 8 market, owing to the immense 
quantity being marketed. Wood 
CO nes to this market from Water- 
to An township, Waconia, Chan- 
hnssen, Laketown, Dahlgren and 
B. nton, and the receipts have av- 
•r iged over 200 cords per day every 
day since the sleighing was good. 
Tlie cash quotations for wood, as 
w ? go to press are as follows :

Jack Doane had always been consid- 
ered a doll boy by his teachers, by the 
neighbors, and even by his father. He 
was seventeen, and James a younger 
brother, was fifteen, and a remarkably 
bright boy. His lather destined him 
for the law, but Jack was to settle down 
on the farm. He was only fit for a 
farmer. The farm was situated half a 
mile cot from Olean, where the boys 
attended school. They had completed 
their studies in the public schools and 
were now ready for the academy. 

Jack was dull; every one aaid so— that 
Is every one excout his mother. She 
seemed to anderstand Jack and have 
confidence in him. She knew he 
slow, but ahe had learned tiiat he could 
be depended upon. Farmer Doane had 
determined that Jack should go to work 
on the farm. Bm Jack possessed a 
dogged determination, lie had decided 
to go throajh the academy and he en- 
listed hi9 luottier to his -ide, and be- 
tween them ifcey pit r.ited. and the

very dull, to say the least. 

Jack excelled in one thing— mathe-

mastered every prin.ipio as he w«nt 
along. He labored muter out; <;reat dii- 
ficulty in Bchool. He coiild not oxplan

j cotamolion it created was not. In a 
j luiriuto lie was surrounded bv fifty old 
aaiaaintance-*, all trvinn to shake bis

Jack fttood it all calmly, and finally

who had Jieard, as they Hat i i the dark-

the farm. 

Never did the village of Oh an experi-

novel, every on» said, when tl.ey learned 
tiiat Ja»k had devf lope 1 into one of the

the opening of the great iilvermine 

in Coloiado, and was now enijagod, at a

important railway in the We.- r. He was 
a tad, Si.iiti, splendid looking man, one 
who looked as though he 1 new what 1 
foundation he was standing upon and ' 
that it was f nre.

principal owner of the mine r sferred to,

feet high; ripens in eighty-five to ninety 
days; is very prolific, the main stalks

The draw back is that the rows are quite

There are several diseases of the fskin

to different persons as "cow-itch." In

lard and petroleum or kerosene well

has been used effectively, and some- 
times valuable animals have died appar-

of the bar, and the pride of Farmer

the sheriff'. The process by which t^ii- 
was affected was a long one, oonipyin 
some months, and they were mtd ome»

upbraided him for his follv and declined 
that he deserved to lose i he farm. 

"If Jack were only here," said Mr?.

For Women's Eyea. 

An elegant mantel lambreqain is 
of dark green velvet, and is without 
decoration except across the edge at the 
bottom; crescents of thin brass are at- 
tached to cords, and a small tassel is 
fastened to each; this has the effect of a 
rich tiinge. A gieat addition to the ap- 
pearance of the mantel Is to have a 
piece of the velvet of tlie width and 
denth of the lambro luin fastened to tho 
wall above the shelf. It may be tacked 
with br.iss-hea^led nails, or fastened to a 
revular curtain i>oIe with brass rings. 
This makes a good background to bring 
into relief any handsome articles of man- 
tel furniture. Bia->se.^ and paintings of 
any kind are shown to good advantage; 
china also.— Foolish and Inconsider- 
ate mothers and foolish and untaught 
girls and young bdies believe in and 
practice tight-lacing as a means of secur- 
ing beauty of form. If they will Ktudy 
tlie classic models, they ought to Mie 
plainly enough that the Greek Slave, 
Nenud di Medici, and every masterpiece 
of female beauty in marbie, bear 
conclufcive proof that the corset 
has had no influence in shaping 
the ideal of the sculptor. These 
ideal forms are beautiful because they 
lepeat the lines found in the perfect fe- 
male figure, and the figure onlv is per- 
fect which IS UHvitiatod by fasiiion and 
Hymmetru-al in all its parts. The laced 
waist of .Viuericau woman of fashion and 
the baudaiied foot of the Chinese woman 
are eqtially outrages upon nature. 

The British Medical Journal, noting a 
recent discussion by American physi- 
cians concerning women's horse-back 
riding, with the declafAlion by one of 
'the debaters that no woman ought to 
ride horselwck, calls attention to the 
fact that in England equestrian exercise 
id the happy privile<;e and d:iily practice 
of thotu^anilB of all ages, and delicate as 
well as robust ci>netituiious, and add*— 
It iy impossible for any one who has seen 
the healthy glow spread over the cheeks, 
pale just before, of some ladv after hall 
an hour's exercise on horseback, to agree 
with tlie proposed dictum. Ladies take 
far too little exercise in the fresh air. It 
is rather the duty of tho man to 
seek to encoura'.,'e athletic exercise of all 
kinds, tliatt to deprecate it Irom fanciful 
fear. Americans will gain healtn and 
lo?e nothing in grace or refinement by 
emnlatinu the aceompIi^^hmenta of their 
Bogiish sisters as horsewomea. 

The Care of Sheep. 

Sheep will endure severe cold if kept 
dry; but exposure to storms, either rain 
or snow, is very hurtful. The water re- 
mains in the wool and in an atmosphere 
little, if any, above freezing it chills the 
body a long time. It is for this reason 
that an open winter is generally unfav- 
orable for feedingsheep. If kept hoaxed 
they are too warm, their appetite 
fails and they lose flesh, no matter how 
fed. The coi4r.-5e-woolled sheep are 
more impatient of wet than the fiae- 
wooUed, the heavy oily gum on the wool 
of the latter keeping tlie water from 
penetrating to the skin. 

Clover bay is almost essential to the 
profitable fattening of sheep. If com 
and hav were both the same price per 
pound 1 should use soire portion of 
clo /er hay daily. Usually clover is sold 
much cheaper than timothy, and of the 
three pounds of feed which a sheep 
weighing 100 requires daily, at least two 
pounds should be clover hay, given in 
equal portions morning and night, alter 
the feed of grain. The feci at noon 
should be roots, witii all the straw du- 
ring the day that the sheep will eat. 
Thevwill pick up considerable no mat- 
ter how wed fed, the cliange of feed 
from hay and grain giving them an 
appetite. The noon feed of roots is im- 
portant mainly to increase appetite. 
Inatead of saving other food it enables 
the sheep to eat and digest more. 

The poorer a fiock of sheep is the 
greater care and skill are needed in 
bringing them up. Too often thin flesh 
»8 the Sinn not ff inauflicient food, but 
of impaired digestioiiT Of ah ruminants 
the sheep is most apt to suffer from poor 
digestion and most needs careful, reg- 
ular leedinsf. The alternation of heavy 
feeding with scarcity is most injurious 
wxiuer It De at neariy ttie same time 
or not. A eheep is rarely made very 
fat without having its digestive organs 
Bomewbat hnpaired. This is shown if 
such animals are allowed to run down 
from food iuFuflicient or of poor quality. 
In such a case they are almost hope- 
lew?, e-pecially when taken in the winter. 
If any fanner thinks of fattening sheep 
be should begin in the summer, keep- 
ing the anm Is on good pasturage and 
gradually getting them into condition 
If he begins in the winter he should 
take slieep at least half-fattened for feed- 
ing. There is much less risk and more 
profit in feeding sheep partly fat; be- 
cause as compared with poorsoeep their 
dii^flstion Is aiucb better.

are greatly elated ,over the succesj 
reached." Thi.s ni.iv be the discovery 
long desired; and if it ia not, it is almost 
certain that some process will be dis- 
covered by which the sorghum cane,

One of Those Queer Stories fbr Wblch 
There is So £xplanation. 

Prom L'ppincott's M«f?czlne. 

Tne following was related to 1061)7 the 
gentleman to whom It happened, and 
whom I sliall call 2ir. Kennedy. It was 
mentioned in the moEt commonplace 
way iu the ordinary course of conversa- 
tion— -not as a supernatural occurrence, 
but simply as a singular and puzzling ex- 
perience, fhere is a long and very nar- 
row strip of wooded land, known as 
"PegAlIey'i Point," pitnated between 
the main Btream of Miles river and one 
of the navigable creeks which flow into 
it. This little peninsula is about two 
miles long, from fifty to two or three 
hundred yards in width, bounded 
by deep wa'.er and overgrown 
with pine and underbnish. There 
i<J a traditfon that many years ago a 
party of Baliimore oystenne'n encamped 
on the point, among whom was a man 
named .■Vllev, who had abandoned his 
wife. The deserted woman followed up 
her hosband and found him at the camp, 
where some words passed between them, 
the of which was that the man in- 
duced his wife to follow him into a 
thicket an 1 there murdered her with a 
c'nb. The point ha>i ever since been 
known by I'eg Alley's name, and her 
perturbed spirit has been supposed to 
haunt ttie scene of her untimely taking 
off. Mr. Kennedy had lived from boy- 
hood on the place and had never given 
a serious thought to the story. Two or 
three years i\go h« hail a party of rail- 
splittersat work on the point, the foreman 
who finally refused to go lack, declar- 
ing that queer things happened down 
there and that he had seen a ghost His 
employers laughed at him and dismissed 
the matter from his mind. Some time 
after this .Mr. Kennedv bad ccoision t<i 
ride Uirough the wtMjdn one afternoon 
to Io<ik after some sheep there being 
but one road and the water on either 
SKle. .As he af.proached the point his 
horse started violently and refused to go 
;ai, rejmrd less of whip and spur. L<K)k- 
ing about for the cause of this unusual 
(right he saw a woman rise up from a 
log u,x)n which she bad been sitting, a 
(ew yards in advance, and stand by the 
load-side, lockinc at him. She was very 
portrly clad in a faded calico dress and 
wore a limp-eunbonnet, from neneath 
which her thinjet-bia k bair etrajigled 
over her shoiiMers. Her face was thin 
and sallow and her eyes black and pierc- 
ing. Knowing that eae had no bu.sines8 
there, and occupied in controlling 
bis horse, he calle-l to her somewhat 
angrily to get out of the way, as the an- 
imal was aft aid of her. She turned and 
walked t^lowb- into the thicket, without 
a word, lookin-.: back at bunas she went. 
With much difficulty he forced his 
horse to the <»pot, wi.shing to find ont 
who the intruder might be, hut no trace 
oi any one could be found af^er a care- 
ful search, although there wasno placeof 
cuni'-ealment and no po.s«jijI» way of 
esc!npe, for wliich. indeed, tuerc was not 
suflident time. Mr. Kennedy declared 
that the thought of Peg Alley never en- 
tered his mind until that moment, but, 
upon finding that no one was on thu 
iKjnineuli besides himself, he turned his 
horse homeward without lo»'k:ni: farther 
after his sheep and with a decidedly 
sympathetic feeling toward the recusant

Uow Potatoes Were Popularized. 

il. Parinentier in 17)i3 introduced po- 
tatoes into France in a novel manner. 
Having planted a considerable breadth 
of potato©'? at Montreuil, near Paris, he 
gained an audience with tlie unfortunate 
Louis XVI, In the cotltse of which he 
in.spired his majesty with ideas of the 
value of the potato. 

"liul how are we to make people eat 
what they are prejudiced against?" in- 
quired the king. 

'•t>lr, if your m^esty will gracious! V 
afford me a little aid, that prejudioe win 
be removed," said M. Paruitutier. 

"To overcome prejudice is difficult, 
hut how can laid you. M. Parmentier?" 

"If your iruijePty will Kracioualv order 
that a soldier shall mount guard in my 
Dotato field at Montreoili potatoes shall 
be the ta.snion in les^s than i«ix inonths." 

Ilie king laughed and granted Par- 
mentier's reonest. Thenietbrward a 
military guard mizht be seen promena- 
ding with measured tread the naturalist's 
potato field. Uow precioiu must that 
blue-do\\ered plant be, thought the 
lookers-on. No more fear of leprosy — 
no more dread of poisoning. Theirifrh- 
est people in France were proud to eat 
potatoes. '

Cord Wood. 

Owing to the fact that the H. & 
D. Railroad company is not buying 
wood this winter in this county, 
tho price has dropped somewhat in 
tl is market, owing to the imaiense 
quantity being marketed. Wood 
ccmes to this market from Water- 
town township, Waconia, Chau- 
hiissen, Luketown, Dahlgren and 
B*nton, and the receipts havn av- 
•laged over 200 cords per d.iy every 
dii.y since the sleighing was goo<l. 
Tac cash quotations for wood, as 
wi go to press are as follows :

Rumors are {urrenl of A probable cut 
tin); of passetiK^r ami freight rates on 
the irreat trunk lines leailini; to the sea- 
board. If pudi a thing conld occur there 
wuuM be mu-sic! in the air and the peo- 
ple woukl dance for a while, even if they 
were af erwarda compelled to pay the 
piper. The tendency of rates is down- 
wanl and present prices cannot be kept 
up indefinitely. 

^"ongress had a spasm of virtue, or 
what the members supposed would be 
taken for it, and voted to sit during the 
holidays anditi p^sed a fine on absentees 
during that period, }^nbseqnently this 
was reconsidered and Coayress voted to 
a«ijonrn from the 22d. to Jan. 2. Proba- 
bly this is the best disposition of the 
matter under the circumstances, for very 
little bui«ine«8 would have been done, 
with a (ev more than a quorum present. 

The New York Tribune has discovered 
what it believes to be the principal rea- 
•jon why churches are not well filled, or 
why a majority are not more than one 
or two-thirds full. The fact is attributed 
to the reading of written sermona or 
preaching from more or less copious 
notes, when they shoald adopt the prac- 
tice of lawyers, and stump orators, 
which is much better cftlculated to engat;e 
and hold attention. This view of the 
eiubject is not new. It has been incal- 
cated for many years, and a lartte nun- 
be r of ministers have discarded written 
discourses. But are the chur«b*fc b«tt«r 
tided than under the old systflm? 


The great railway masnates have 
patched up a trnce fc^"'ft time and old 
rates have been restored. The larger 
amount of travel compensated to a con- 
siderable extent for low fun-s and so the 
contest was not disastrous to any of the 
warrini' lines. This fact ought to teach 
railroads that lower fares, like cheap 
postskre, will result in a large increase of 
huninesa, but it ia doubtful whether it 
will linve this effect. The truth is, that 
the more ni'ople travel the more they 
want to travel, and the true way to en 
courage this-- tendency is to meet it by n 
moderate reduction of fares. The end 
will he tncreaspd receipts and more gen-

In a few years the heart of Africa— 
ihe ^r«'at equatorial region, with it* 
fi-uii'ul table lands and its mutitudi- 
riuus people— will be as well known to 
the commercial world as any part o! 
indiaorthe Isthmus of Darien. Stanley 
has explored the Congo river for more 
than twelve hundred miles; he saw that 
a new highway for commerce could be 
opene<l up. A company was formed in 
Brl^iom to further ibis new enterprise 
Stanley was sent back with an equip- 
ment to open up a great commercial 
highway to the heart of the continent. 
Abonf the same lime DeBrazaa •at sent 
out by a French i-omiiany for the same 
purpose. There has been some rivalry 
between the two interests. But the 
meat important fact remains that the 
path of commerce is located in the path 
of the geographical explorer. Central 
Africa swarms with population. The 
land except around the coast is favor- 
able to human life. The exnlorers were 
Ptrock with the groat resources of the 
country. There are gold, ivory and the 
richest tropical productions, all awaiting 
the utilizing hand of commerce. 

Ills not a matter of surprise that 
claim age ta and a percentage of pen- 
sioners are vigorously opposing th« pas- 
sage through congress of the resolution 
calling npon the commissioner of |ien- 
eiuae to furnish for publication the list ol 
pensioners. It becomes more evident 
©very day that there are dishonest pen- 
sioners upon the rolls of the depart- 
ment, and that the applications of many 
others who are net eniitled to pensions 
under the Jaw are conntantly 'oeing filed. 
It is these classes and the agents who 
have been and still are engaged in 
"working ' such claims through the de- 
partment, that are fighting the proposi- 
tion to make<he names public. Honest 
pensioners, who are, i)y virtue of their 
woands and disabilities, entitled to the 
bounties of the government, should not 
object to their names being made public. 
No money was ever more honestly 
earned, and no appropriation from th« 
treasury is more heartily endorsed or 
more c heerfully paid by the people than 
that for the disabled soldiers, and eveiy 
good soldier, whether a pensioner or 
not. is interested in purging the rolls of 
fraudulent claimants, in order to more 
surely protect those who are really de-

ten per cent., while u» beef, butter, corn 
and potatoes it was nearly thirty percent. 
The prices for last month, however

A breach of promise case of unusnal in- 
terest will be tried in New York next month. 
The defendant is Gen. Chas. E. Puriong.sald 
to be an intimate friend of Oen. Orant. The

' Now about that you see I oanuot be fool 
enough to decline what is not offered to me; 
but what do I want — to turn from the pros- 
pect of rest and peace, at last for a period 
of years, to the delusion of fonr years in 
an office that is lost hell! That's what it 
la," continued tne generel, emphath ally. 
"It Is hell. What did Gen. Harrison get 
out of it? Nothing but a month of misery. 
What tlid Oen. Taylor get out of it? Twelve 
months of misery. What did Grant get out 
of it? Do I want to resign this competence

Col. IngersoU concluded his address to the 
jury on the opening of the Star Route trials 
on Friday. He said: 

It is tor you gentlemen, to say whether 
yon will take as the grounds of your verdict 
the prejudice of the public proa, leiters of 
the attorney general, and opinions of some 
counsellor-at-law, or whether yon will be 
governed by the testimony. It ia for you to 
say whether reputations shall be destroyed 
by malace and by ignorance. It is for yon 
to say whether the man who fought to sus- 
ta'n this xovemment shall not have the pro- 
tection of the laws. It is for you; for you. 
for you (addressing directly each colored 
man on the jury), to say whether the man 
who fought to take the chains off of your 
body shall have chains put on hi* by your 
prejudice or ignorance.

Van Nore'B Daugliter-in-Law* 

From Onr Continent, 

The Van Nores were present at the 
creation of the world. Some people say 
they made it; but one really knows bet- j 
ter than that If It bad not been | 
for their unaocouniafjle belief tbat 
the builder of the ark that rested on 
Mount Ararat was a Jew, and Iheir un- 
utterable contempt for tbe race of Spino- 
la and Mendelsssohn, of Heine, Auer- 
lach and Disraeli, they would not have 
hesitated to conceive that the family 
name of the Patriarch was Van Nores. 

At any rate, yon may understand tbat 
the Van Nores were an Immensely an- 
cient family, ao old as to be re&llj worm- 
eaten. In the dost of the Van Nores 
there were soldiers and statesmen, and 
even a less revrarded author or two; in 
thia century there was nothing at all to 
speak of. If. however, any one says 
their family tree was liRe one of those of 
old, wide and deeprooted hr trees, 8 om©- 
times seen, with bat a single gnarled 
and lichened branch last of all its forest 
glory, the best eart of it underground, 
yoQ can see tbat the person \i ao friend 
of the Van Noree, but one whose eyes 
have been hart by the dazzle of their 
splendor, who has been forgotten at their 
banquets, looked at iHth a etony glare 
upon tho street or possibly knocked 
down and bruii»ed and ignored by their 
fast horses 

Being immensaly ancient, immeusely 
distingtoshod, and ahw immensely 
wealthy, it goes witbo'Jt eaylng that tho 
NTun >^ores thought immenseiv weil of 
themselves. They never soilad their 
garments by contact with the oro«id; 
tiiey bought their pictures and statues 
eiraight from the manufacturers before 
they had been proinr^fcd bv thy vulgar 
?aze; they would have liked the gold 
th«v spent cast with a Van Nore device 
antf the die broken They cxjiild not 
nope to keep all the knowledge in the 
universe to themselves; but they dia 
not mre so murh for that — there were 
alTt^ayf tntore and chaplains and all that 
to be hail, after the eastern of certain of 
the fcjooth Sea Island chiefs, who main- 
tain a Fila-oma or Talking Man of Knowl- 
edge. If, once in a while, they allowed 
themselves to come before the oublio in 
a matter of suffrage, it was not altogether 
without tbe seaeation of some wicked 
scribe wlio ba« written the Sacred name 
with unwashed hands, and, being usually 
defeated, they relapsed into a more pro- 
found contempt of the people than be- 
fore, and talked glibly of the edvar.tages 
of a monarc'iy, although not without zn 
undercurrent of feeling that in tbe event 
of a monarch the Van Nores would be 
monarchs. They intermarried, of course, 
only with families of a pedigree and as- 
sumption one degree less than— It could 
not h e more than, and couid hardly b« 
equal to — the Van Nores. 

Jad^e, theh, of the bewildered and 
amazed wratli of the v«tj Nore family, 
when the eon of the he use, the Iitlr of 
the name, the only male 'Van Nore left 
to go down the ages witii the weight of 
the family illuhtriousness upon hla 
shouldtTS, married e young girl in the 
west, unknown, obecnre, pczr, and a 

Nore Van Nore had a sister older 
than himself, a dark and imposins crea- 
ture with the Van Nore nose; he nad a 
sister younger than himself, pallid, 
bloodless, with her mother's delicacy of 
feature, and with notliing about her but 
her hau;;litine89 to distinguish her from 
the herd of young women ; he had one 
Van Nore cousin, a little apple blossom 
hardly coming up to the family require- 
ments; he bad four Van Nore spinster 
aunts, who, if they quarreled among 
thf'iriEQlves like birds in the wood, pre- 
sented an unbroken phalanx of the 
family integrity to tlie public, and who, 
with the idea that they bad thg manners 
of duchesses, really itave some reason to 
believe them directlv descended fn.nn 
I'tttnarch, they looked eo extrtnielv like 
tha wooden women inj^the children s toy 
arks. Hisfather embodied all the di^Jnity, 
pompo.sityand grandeur of all the Van 
Nores before him, if he were the tiame of 
their ashes; he had but one eilt, and 
that was a faculty for satirical speech, 
which he exercised with impunity upon 
his wife — hia wifb, the line of whose de- 
scent was so long that it had worn to a 
colorless, attenuated thread in her, a 
thin, pale, languid woman, of whose 
conuition it expresses little to say slie 
dared not call her soul her own, because 
in looking at her, or looking tiirough 
her, raiher, it was not clear that she had 
a soul — a woman without intellect, with- 
out individuality, and almost without \i- 
tality. Into this assemblage Nore Vao 
Nore had dared introduce a person ab- 
solutely without a grandfather, and 
whose grandfather, had she had one 
would have been named ShacabacI 

Mr. Van Nore and his household would 
entreat this vi/e and vulgar intrigver, 
who had thrust herself upon them, and 
had thought to lift herself by pulling 
them down, as she deserved. In their 
heart of hearts they had a complete if 
inarticulate, consciousnees that no one 
could have married the bridegroom in 
gnestion for any other purpose And 
Nore Van Nore received a letter of re- 
puuiation from his father, disowning 
and casting him forever into the outer 
darkness of the world of people who 
were not Van Nores. 

And who was Nore Van Nore? He was 
a young man of twenty-six years, whose 
mental processes had mastered the rudi- 
ments of leariiini,; to such un extent that 
he could read the newspaper and make 
change. All attempts to cultivate those 
mental processes much farther had failed ; 
if he entered tiie university at last, it 
waa because tutors and proctors and 
family influence, a fortuitous chance, 
and perhaps money, all wrought togeth- 
er. Entrance was all, however; before 
the first term closed Mr. Van Nore had 
prlviitebut authoritative intimation tliat 
unless he wanted expulsion for atupidity 
approaching imbecility, he had better 
withdraw his ."on. In a hot and self- 
righteous fury, Mr. Van Nore turned the 
tables and expelled the oniversity. He 

withdrew his son with a wild show of 
ant;er and scorn for faculty, curriculum, 
endowment and career. "They have 
graduated no man who comes to any- 
thing for the last twenty-five years!" he 
said. And that the matter might be the 
sooner forgotten, he gave Mr. Nore Van 
Nore a purse and a tra<^eling compan- 
ion, and deapatched him to the far wast. 
It was probably bat a case of retarded 
developement; perhaps he would do a 
little exploring and uiscovering; when 
he should return tho ajQair would 
have quite blown over, and be would 
marry him to some maiden who 
had been so well brotit;ht np 
that she would feel Vr'-^e'f nt;u., u !•'•-•

fail to make his wife'a life t^ tmrden to 

Ker by ■trcasm on her feeble wit that 
had been strong enough to adulterate 
the strength of the Van Nore, while the 
▼ery sense of (us son's incapacity, thtis 
lorce<3 tJpon mm, was another argument 
•(^nst the woman who would marry 
an imbecile fo. thd e^ke of climbing into I 
his rank and position { 

It was not altogether to be wondered 1 
at, then, If his wife did not fully srmpa- j 
thize with him in his extremity, and if ' 
being of an r.ffeclionate disposition, sol 
&r as she had anything to impart, hav- I 
ing imparted that also to her son, she ' 
wrote a little surreptitiotis letter— ' 
she who had usuallv not a thought nor ' 
a deed nor an emotion of her own. | 

"My Dabuxg Boy: I send you all I 
my love. Any wife you choose re i 
maiT>' will be {he dear daughter to your 
mother." ! 

That was the letter so ser.retlv*; it | 
meant volumes to her; itukeant vomines 
to her boy. f?he was frightened to a 
trembling ghoct -if her ghost- like self 
when she etoppe^l the carri.age ayd 
asked the footman to drop it ic a street' I 
box, for she felt that if her husband { 
knew It wonld not be immpossible |or | 
him to blow out her flxkering flame of , 
liie altogether, or stamp its feeble spark ! 
Into the earth. Ho never had strucit j 
her. but she never knew what be might ' 
do do yet ! 

The father's letter, when it came^ was j 
not at all expected by Hero Van Nore. i 
nor was the mother's a surprise, 'ihe j 
was a girl of twenty, "divinely tall and , 
most (Tidnely fair.'* Her superb mould- 1 
Ings would have fed a sculptor's eye v>-ith , 
rapture, her superb coloring wotild J 
have driven wild another than Titian: ' 
tbe great braids upon her head seemecl 
tnade of strsndH of spun gold; she wore 
them like a rrovn. ae became a daugh- 
ter 01 the royul trioe of Judah. She waa 
tfndoubtedly a Jewess; but aa Miriam, 
as Deborah, as Susannah may have done 
she had the large beauty of that Clytie

a pair of gloves there.

since to his traveling; companion and he 
was Traitin^ in thi» little place till lie 
should receive a freeli remittflnce from 
his fatlier. Wlien lie paw Hero he hnd 
something else to wait for. He hunu 
round the shop comers, and when siae 
went hoiue be lollowei her. Veraiy- 
t^e?u ratuit dea — ehs stepped as iftJrt» 
earth were air; he said to himself that 
it was because his heart was under her 
feet. He knew intuitively that she 
would not give him a second look. 
What were tiie Van Nores out ■ 
here in the wildemossT He ' 
was able to see, lor all his deficiency, ! 
that she was on a higher pland pf beins ! 
than his own. But if he could not h-^pe | 
he could at least suffer; he could gaze at [ 
tbe star he might not win. He bought ■ 
another pair of gloves. Ah, heavens! to ■ 
feel the touch cf those fingers of her j as 1 
they stretched the kid from side to t^ide ! 
of His hand! The next day he bought i 
mother pair. Before he was tfirough ' 
he had bot?gbt the whole stock of giovee 1 
In the shop. 

Of conrse this attracted her attention 
and the made some inquiry couceminl^ 
hiui, "You had bettei go away," shs 
said, when he came in Hgain. "You do 
not need rloves, or ties, or anv of our 
goods. Yon are making yourself ridicu- 

"I Imve'nolhlngto do with it," he re- 
plied "I was made so when I was 

And so oim: './crd led to another, and 
in the course of time he Led told her hie 
story, which eomehuw seemed faM of 
trrongs, tlie story of a rather feehie- 
minded youth who had been snubbed 
and brotv- beaten and ill-used by a dis- 
appointed father from his birth Her 
heart wa." Mtiired with pitv ; she let him 
come to the house liope"boiinded with- 
in him. If tbe star should fall hrom 
the sky to his orms; He wrote 
his father— 1 forgot to say thet, he 
could write -that he wanted his influence 
to help hiui luHny the ^lo^t lovely, the 
most virtuous, the most brilliant ol wo- 
men, who waited behind the counter of 
her /others little Jew shop The answer 
to this letter made his hair stand on end. 
Cold, sneering, vin-iictive, cruel, threat- 
ening— v'^hnt ehoultl lie do but show it to 
her? Her biocd would have been cold 
and thin stuff' hud th&t not made it boil. 
"I can never go back to h lit! . It is the 
last blow he shnll ftrlke me." 

"Would you be happier h^ro In the

down to help her wait l)€hind the coun- 
ter in the shop where she con.sulted 
him and referred to him and honored 
him till she was likely t« make others 
share the strange respect she had for 
him. "He is single hearted," sh« said 
to one of her old lovers in that primitive 
community, who felt the right to make 
some outspoken complaint, "he is up-

A year from that time Hero did not 
go to' the show much; she had a Utile 
son— and not such a very little one 
either— a bouncing, magnificent boy, 
with nis mother s colors auO eyes, run 
of life and joy and spirit, and quite the 
most remarkable babv in the world. 
And so, when the chilu was six months 
old, it seemed to Nore Van Nore in his 
happiness that he v as wronst to deprive 
his family of the bea^ng of knowing of 
sueh a blea'«ing, and he wrote home for 
the third time, but this time to his 
mother. This was shaking the red fla^ 
in the face of the bull. Mr. Van Nore 
trampled up and down his wife's sitting 
room awhile, reared and stamped anu 
snorted and bellowed, and not till he 
had reduced her to tears for having 
brought such a son into the world, and 
liad pursued it till she gasped for breath 
and had to have the maids and ether 
and hot bottle^, did be subside into si- 
lence and thought. 

That this son of a beggarly shou-girl 
of a Jewess should be the Van Nore. 
Never, never, if he had to put out tbe 
light of all the Van Nores at ouce! -loce- 
lyne, his eldest daughter, should mar- 
ry young De Vere, and he should take 
the name of Van Nore. For a sum of 
money Nore should break tbe entail 
and renounce his name, tak- 
ing instead tbat of his low* 
bom wife. And so Jovcelyne's son, 
who was a foregone conclusion in Mr 
Van Nore's mind, should be the gre&t 
Van Nore to come. He had a satchel

I did wisli my Betsey was therel I 
never did have no natural dignity, an' I

Well; the truth Is, I felt it come on me 
to appear sort of rouiU to that gal just to 
*ave my own ft elinjjs. 

"laintgota tree for two cents," I 
■ays, turrtiig away gruff like. "I'm 
idkfraid you'll Iiave to gosrtmewhcreelse." 
Now do yon think that gal acted any-

while I went on hanti;ing up an everlast-

tr6ab:edhera mete. Out came them

drove away, it was a-smiling at sie ttom 
the window; an* I whistled a goon hits 
of the way over to town. It did seem 
as i! there never was a brighter sun, 
come up, an' the clean annw on the road- 
aide ghstened an' sparkled in the t lom- 
ing rays., as if it, too, was glad for tie lit- 
tle pirl. 

Well, I had got my load off f rot i the 
wagon, and was just setting up a ©>upie 
of greens, when I knowed the ga was 
coruing. I heard them nhoee oi hers 
an' then I saw her eits laffln' 'rouidth 
corner of my stall. 

•'Oood-mornmg, miater," she aaid. 
"Vou aint forgot me, liave you?" 

'if I imd, I reckon I'd never Lavsthe

ttiOQght to myself; but I said aloo 1, "I 
alius keep my word, sissy. Did yoa 
bring your coppers?" 

"Oh, yes, mister; I wouldn't havr for- 
got ttiem," ahe says, opening her I^etle 
fingers. I'll declare if I (fon't beiieve 
.ibe'd slept all night squeezing them in 
her hand, so to have them ready. 

I took the two cents,— yes I dli. I 
wanted that ere child to think siii> was 
biijing that tree. A gal that pays fur 
thints as she «oes, won't be apt to want 
what don't lielong to her for aothin^. 

My Betsey wouldn't have done it but 
1 was right. 

Then I took out the tree. Weil. I 
wish you could have seen the gal laugh, 
—curia, eyes, an' teeth! An' then she 
rolled up them overcoat sleeves, an' held 
out her urms jcet as if it was a baby she 
was going to take into 'em. An* ^»ben 
I'd laid It whar she expecting me to, thar 
wan't an atom of her to be aeen. She 
was clean covered up. But all the time 
I could hear her laut;hin>; to herself an 

grown up 
woman appear tuk back, she was. She 
jot up an' jest tjik that leetle gal right in 
bur arms, an' adts,— 

"John, if I don't follow the call that's

"It's jest as vou eay, Betsey." aays I. 
powerful tickled inside. "That's all i 
jiad to answer." An' then I fell to laff- 
Um- Tat I /irned 'rt.und, an' would vou 
Ijeheve it that gal was crlnklin' an' laff- 
ini; herself, to such a degree I c»^)u'dnt 
belp It. An' she looked so Batisfled an' 
tiowavs B*.tonished at my Betsey, m 
tbough she knew all the time her Christ- 
mas would bring her love, an' home, an' 

Yoq'U oome with OS, won't yon?" 
ea^9 my wife to her. 

'Oh, I'll come! There aint no one 
wants me here but Mis' McOane wash- 
Ing-daya, an' she'd ruther have big Mag- 
gie, lean take my tree, can't I, ma'am?" 
she asked, slipping her hand in Betsey's 

"We'll always keep that tree," saya 
my wiib, solemn like,— "always, always, 
John! 1 feel as though it has brought 
us comfort that we did not exoect. and 
tliat the good Father as blessed as

room for you and the tree, too, whar* 
we livs.' 

An' that's the way we come to have 
Faith, as we call her now. She's been a 
child to us ave years,— that makes her 
sixteen,— an' if ever a sunbeam come in-

"Thank ye, mister! It's a nice one

It took her longer to git out with ber 
load tban it did to dance in without it, 
but before sheM gone it oc\;urred to me' 
to ask her wliar ahe lived. She hollured 
back the number of the miserable place,

of the )jal for that day.

In one of Louis Figuler's imaginative soi 
entitle books he places a sp^tator on a dis- 
tant star which tbe refiectad light from tha 
earth does not reach in lesa than a himdred 
1 ytars. Equipped with a auffloiently power- 
! ful glass, this indiv dual ootdd in tbe course 
I of a long life behold the principal eventa 
I and prominent men that made tbe history 
I of the world for a century past. He oould 
as a youas child, see the war of iude- 
) pandeoce, the French revolution, the rise 
j and fall of Napoleon, the wonderful mod- 
ern Inventions, from the steam engine to 
llie telegraph, the figures of Wasningttm 
I and Bonaparte, Wellin^ston and Bismarck, 
Qoetbe and Herbert Spencer, Byron and 
I Tenny.soD, Scott and Charles Beed, all, of 
I course, 100 yearslate, run still distinct and 
I coDseoutive. Were he a former inhabitant

him like a panorama. 

What the Frenchman'a Imafjlnary inhabi- 
tant of the star could see, tbe ^till vigorous 
and vivid memory ot a veteran likeThurlow 
Weed can now Iwhold aa in a viaion. "The 
8dcb anniversary of bU birthday was cele- 
brated laai week, and Is a snggub-flve tie of 
reminiscence between this age and the last. 
Bom lu 1767, he must, at two years ot 
age, have heard, perhaps understood, tbe 
account of the death of W .'limrton. At 
aeven he oould have read the report of Jef- 
ferson's re-elecdon, Kapoloon'a ooronat'oD as 
emperor of France, the battle of Ansterlitz, 
and of the first steam looomotive on the 
Welab tramway. Aa a cabin Iwy

George D. Prentice's Advice to a 
Young .>lau. 

To a yuuoK man away from boint>, 
friendleas and forlorn in a great city, 
the honrs of peril are tbose between 
sunset and bedtime; for the moon and 
stars see more evil in a eint^le hour than 
than tbe sun In bis whole day's circuit. 
The poet'a visions of evening are all 
composed of tender and soothing images. 
It brings tbe wanderer to his Lome, the 
child to bis mother's arms, the ox to his 
stall and tbe weary laborer to his rest. 
But to the g'^ntle-hearted youtti who is 
thrown upon the rocks of the pitiless 
city, and stands homeless amid a thou- 
sana homes, the approach of 
evening brings with it an ach- 
iut( sense at loneliness and 
desolation which uomfs down u)»>n the 
spirit bke darkiitr«;« upon tbe earth. In 
this meod his best Impulse becomes a 
snare to bim; and he ia lead astray be- 
cause he is 9o<:ial, affectionate, syiQ- 
pbatheticand warm-hearted. If there be 
a young man thus circumstanced within 
tbe sound of my voice, let me say to bim 
that books are tl»*' friends of the friend- 
less, and tbat n library is a home to tbe 
homeless. A taste for reading will al- 
ways carry you to converse with men 
who will induence yoo with their wis- 
dom and charm you by their wit, who 
will soothe you when fretted, refresh 
you when weary, counsel you when per- 
plexed, and sympathize with you at all 
times. Evil aoirits in the middle ages 
were ezorcitiea and driven away by bell, 
j book and candle, and you want but two 
of these agents, the book aud tbe candle. 

I Bathetic Noa.seu<)e Played Out. 

I iEstheticism has run its race in Eng- 
I buid. A London letter to tbe Liver- 
j pool Mercury thua records its downfall: 
j "Everybjdy is remarking, and few peo- 
' pie fail to be astonished at the sudden 

I disappearance of the aesthetes from good 
, society. The movement seems to have 
I worn itself out completely, wi far as 
dress is concerned. The erstwhile fasb- 
I ionable colors, the whilom r.^markable 
j phapes, the stran-e and affected atti- 
I tudes, are things ofthe past. It is vul- 
I gar new to wear tasj^green; it is no long- ' 
. er elegant to be limp; and those pecu- ! 
' "ar.ijarnients, designed, like the robe of 
■ V ivian, rather to express the figure than 
to conceal, have been rendered obsolete 
, by the hideous and graceless crinolet. 
In the very homes where it was neces- 
sary to be either Japanese or early Eng- 
lish, or at least 'quaint,' to find a footing, 
the face is now «et against 'mer«» sccen- 

A Prophe<^ of Bntler. 
P. H. 0. in Boston Saturday Evening O* 
>ome yenrs a^o, while R. H. Dana was 
tunning for congress against Qen. Butler, 
there was a dinner at Parker's (in the 
luiye room No. 6, fragrant with the mem- 
oiy of many a symposium), and a youpg 
gentleman was seated t>etween Jac(gc 
E, R. Hoar and Mr. Dana. There was a 
general discussion upon the merits ofthe 
candidate, which reached back and for- 
ward. This young gentleman— younge'r 
then than now— listened and gradually 
giew merry with tbe thought ofthe per- 
turbation whici the planetary orb of Buf- 
i«;r waa prodiu-lngin the political system, 
lie was not a friend of Butler — then or 
in.n- -butthe gravity of his ix^mpanions 
at the table instead of oppressing him 
fceenied to create a mirthful dis^tosition. 
Ihe character of Bntler he did not greatly 
admire, and he no more rejoiced in tlie 
"widow's candiaacy than did his friends 
at the table." But their melancholy 
umiLstid bim. 

Said the youn^ gentleman: "This 
ojntest Is p*<rpetually lenewcd. Annu- 
ally Gen. Butler la 'to be a candlnate. 
He is beaten to-day. He will come again, 
and by and by, for mere weariness, the 
state will accept him. .Some dozen years 
hente, when he has worried everybody 
to death, he will he found to iiave a ma- 

"Tlien," haid he, ' 1 see in vision the 
hoard of overHccrs of Harvard college as- 
sembled at K State street, and there, 
lifter the eleition, the board is convened. 
The gentleman at my right is in the 
chaij. The gentletnan on my left ri.'es 
with his accnsiomed dignity. He say.'*: 
'Mr. Chairman, it is with no common 
motion that I rise on this ooc-asion. You 
are all aware of the trial we have passed 
through; and as custom requires we are 
olvout to honor the chief magistrate des- 
ignated nt the recent eleclion. I ise, 
therefore, to propose that the degree 
ofL. I.. D, be conferred upon tbe poI- 
dier, statesman, lawyer, and publicist. 
Gen. Benjamin V. Butler." ' 

With a mischievous but not ill-tem- 
pered manner, the young gentleman 

"Ui>on this motion the gentleman in 
the chair (Judge Hoar) will rise and 
say: It gives me uncommon pleasure 
to listen to the rctnarks and the motion 
of my friend on the left. The state, tbe 
college, the community, owe him a debt 
of gratitude. It gives me pleasure to 
listen to tbe motion and remarks. an<l 1 
trust the prooosition will meet with gen- 
eral approval." 

Then said the youii^ gentleman: "Gen. 
Butler will bestride hia wonderful horse 
and will canter over Cambridge bridge. 
You will have given him knightly acco- 
lade, and the college will have new hon- 
or in this last and most glorious doctor 
of laws." 

This badinage went on for some time. 
Judge Hoar laughed. Mr. Dana looked 
grave, and at last said: "This is well 
enougb for jest but don't sav it aloudl 
Don't! A loud word in the Alps some- 
times starts the avalanche!" 

Many persons may imagine tliat this

it is, that pain in the back

The village council tendered the 
H. & L. Co., the New Hand Engine

meeting of that company held last 
Thursday evening it was resolved 
to accept the same. It was also

of the Company to the number of 
75 members. Other recommenda- 
tions were also made conforming to 
the change.

The mill company are sawing 
logs by steam and grinding by wa- 
ter power, which makes things 
lively around the mills. 

The boys are taking in Fish by 
the bushel below the mill. The 
turbine wheel kills millions of 
them, so they are easily picked up. 
It .seems to us that the mill com- 
pany should put a screen above the 
wheel, to prevent the fish from 
getting through. If there is a law 
against catching fish Avith a trap, 
there is, or should bo one, against 
killing them in this way. 

Mr. and Mrs. W. W. Holcomb
